middle class tax cut message and i think vice presidential candidate paul ryan has been listening to a few things i have had to say. take a watch. >> growth tax reform, it cuts tax rates by 20%, more take home pay for the middle class. that right there creates about 7 million jobs. >> sit enough, though? does mitt romney get it? our kudlow congress is going to come back in session and see if nick can make the break through. >>> welcome back to the kudlow report, i'm larry kudlow, in this half hour, hold your breath. if bush tax cuts are not extended, watch those popular home short sales being stopped short. that's very important, could cause a wave in foreclosures and another wave in the journey turn in housing. and if that doesn't scare you, it's the first monday in october. and the key issues this year, affirmative action, same sex action, will the john roberts supreme court continue to reshape the country in a liberal or conservative direction? that's what we need to know. 36 days remaining until the election, sometime for some tough love on tax policies. paul ryan appeared on
should go to something like the paul ryan house plan he introduced a couple years ago which would eliminate virtually all deductions and credits and use the money to simplify the tax structure down to 10 and 25%. romney needs to be more bold here. his running mate has the bold ideas for tax reform. that's where we should be going here. >> you know, we've had various members of the house ways and means committee on this program in the last six months. almost to the person they say they want to initiate some sort of overall tax reform for next year that would move toward a tax simplification. we've heard this for years, but that's what's on their agenda. david, i wonder that would work counter to what mitt romney is proposing now. >> tax reform is a heavy lift. lots of vested, strong interest groups are going to fight eliminating the mortgage interest deduction, eliminating the charitable deduction. any of that will be a tough lift. go back to the basic math problem romney has. he wants to cut tax rates, which would cost about $900 billion a year, according to estimates, which means
as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class families in america benefit more from any limit of deductions. >> well, a limit of deductions actually would hurt the wealthy to the extent that we're talking about a deduction that the wealthy take in very, very large amounts. a limit on those deductions makes some sense in terms of a progressive tax system. >> what do you think the plan for the president will be tonight? terms of tax reform, mr. reich? >> the president has said that he wants the so-called buffett rule that is a minimum tax particularly in regard t
it really do enough to change the dynamic in the race. next week it's paul ryan and joe biden. and then two more presidential debates. we'll watch the polls for see the impact. >> what was your verdict? we all have our own panel of strategists that will be coming up at 11:30 cet, that's 5:30 eastern. but we do want to hear from you, as well. what did you make of the debate and performance of each of the candidates? you can send us an e-mail at worldwide@cnbc.com. or via twitter, follow the sh show @cnbcwex. or tweet me directly. several of you already writing with your thoughts. @beccymeehan. let me know what you think about the u.s. presidential debate. there are still more to come and we'll get to some of your comments later this the show. now, one of the other big stories today, the european central bank meets in slovenia, expected to hold back on any action as it waits for spain to decide ifle it will finally ask for a bailout. silvia wadhwa is reporting for us from the outskirts of the slovenia capital. we obviously know the ecb travels around to these events, but where are you exactly
,000 that was the number that paul ryan floated today. things that trouble me. i don't want middle class taxes to go up at all. so i'm worried about not just the mortgage deduction, the kiddy credit, health care deductions and earned income tax credits and i'm a little concerned, i would have to see the details, i want it to red line all middle class deductions and soak the upper end whose rate comes down to 28. >> the chances are of somebody making $80,000 or less, you are probably not going to hit them on the earned income tax credits, probably pretty unlikely. but you are right. it could be a problem with the middle class. you have to see the fine print. did romney release the fine print? >> interview from the fox affiliate in denver. can i ask you? >> let me say this, this is the first time in a long time that i disagree wednesday yo disagreeed with you. if you can trade in people in the middle class to increase their investment i'm all for it even if it means a small investment in the amount that they pay. >> why not get rid of that in terms of the corporate tax rate. >> i'll take it. >> sorry how
, the takers versus the makers as paul ryan said. >> he misspoke on that. >> he spent 17 days doubling down, defending that remark. suddenly when he realized poll numbers were tanking, he comes out on fox news and says i didn't really mean that. >> the rasmussen polls out today show that mitt romney has a nice bounce from that debate. >> three states. hang on a second. but jedadai, mitt romney said he was wrong on the 47%. i think that was pretty good of him to say that. show as ls a lot of character. has president obama said he was wrong when he made the statement that he was wrong when he said you didn't start that business? i don't think i heard him take that back. >> the reason he couldn't have to do that is the media doesn't hold barack obama accountable. the media only holds republicans accountable when they make mistakes and misspeak. mitt romney did have character in saying that. he wanted to make sure those 47% of americans, some of whom don't pay federal income taxes but are supporting governor romney and don't support a message of big government -- >> the reason why he didn't say
't. are you playing paul ryan with have not -- because i hope it's not going to be in a high altitude -- i don't know whether vice president biden is also affected fwhi thin air, but hopefully you've got it at a sea level place. apparently tony, romney was training in the mountains around boulder and he had all his blood cells -- >> one of the funniest things i ever saw. >> the altitude affects romney differently. i think he breathes a little more. >> he's taller. >> maybe he trained for the debate in denver. right some remember max company city? >> i'm glad you're entertaining yourself. >> all preparation that matters, right? >> it is. jarrett, what do you think, are people underestimating the vice president's abilities with paul ryan? >> if they aren't, they shouldn't. he's quick on his feet. he's good at linking things to a narrative. i can't imagine he would want to go into the weeds with paul ryan and talk about budget baselines. he'll talk about the kind of narrative, the middle class, the folks that he believes -- >> the ones buried in the last four years? >> i think joe biden really do
that wants to cut defense spending more than barack obama. and that is not -- >> except for paul ryan. >> i beg your pardon. ryan recast a bill that will -- >> he is for it. >> obama is just catering to the virginia voters and they are not going to buy it. they won't buy it. >> i'm larry kudlow. that's it for tonight's show. economic patriotism, you know what that means, grow the economy by 6 or 7% a year.

romney's proposed with paul ryan an ambitious reformation of the program that would go to voucher, but he hasn't said what the level of the voucher would be or the growth rate in the voucher. if you don't specify that, you can't specify what your savings will be or the impact on consumers. and finally president obama last year in the grand bargain talks with house speaker boehner talked about more ambitious proposals than medicare than he's advocated so far like raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67. hasn't said a word about that in the election campaign so far. you can expect the two to clash on that issue, as well. >> john, i know you've looked at some poll numbers from the journal and nbc news. maybe a slight tightening on a national level. but certainly in some important states like ohio, the president continues to lead. i know you've said the romney strategists believe they need ohio. if it's mathematically possible to win without it, why do they still believe they need it? >> well, because if you don't win ohio, you're probably not going to win, say, wisconsin, which is another
break, talk presidential politics and what paul ryan says about the romney/ryan tax plan. chools in e world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. mike rowe here at a ford tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. who's offering a rebate? your ford dealer. who has the low price tire guarantee... affording peace of mind to anyone who might be in the market for a new set of tires? your ford dealer. i'm beginning to sense a pattern. buy four select tires, get a $60 rebate. use the ford service credit credit card, get $60 more. that's up to $120. where did you get that sweater vest? your ford dealer. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like
of the divide what paul ryan in some respects was supposed to represent. do you think that romney has tacked too far to the middle? in the past week or two he's talked about taxes and suggested that actually on upper and middle-class earners that their taxes aren't going to go down, for example? >> well, i think it needs to be even simpler than that as far as the message, and i don't know about tacking this way or that way. i think genuineness helps you in elections. but what i would say is the main difference between the candidates from my perspective is that president obama thinks that you can hire more government workers and that will stimulate the economy. i see government workers not as bad people, but they're in the wagon. you got to have more people pulling the wagon. i think governor romney understands that. you got to grow the private sector. >> senator paul, thank you for being on today. appreciate it a lot. >>> okay. we got a lot more coming up. at 8:30 eastern we'll get personal spending data for august and talking about the effect of this summer's drought.

on taxes, yesterday you were on the paul ryan clip, but there is a debate over the romney tax plan, not that he's not going to lower taxes, he may lower taxes and that may be a good thing for the economy, but the question is ultimately does it bring in enough revenue to make it revenue neutral? one of the things they have said about republicans is it would lower the deficits but the taxes have exploded under them. your views? >> there's no question the deficits have exploded under them. the last two decades among the two wars and the mistakes in my opinion, we blew a lot of money. multiples of what we blew before. so, you know, my attitude is that -- >> jimmy, my question is do you have any confidence no matter who is in office that actually the hard cuts that need to be made ultimately to make any text plan deficit neutral are actually going to happen? >> and my question to you comes down to a simple question. >> do you believe in the tooth fairy? >> who does the president listen to? i wonder if you could name for me four or five executives who have been advising the president and
, this is not going well for him. next week will be the vice-presidential debate in which i think paul ryan will do quite well against joe biden. you could have the situation where they wrap up two debate victories before he gets back on the field. so whether the poll numbers move or not, we'll wait to see, buttal all the other elements you want to see. having the narrative go your way and the grasset reus and your troops be energized. this couldn't have come at a better moment for mitt romney. >> there's been some discussion. the democrats trying to push, the twitter hash tag #testymitt the way he moved around jim lehler. once you take a punch right in the jaurks it takes them some time to get their legs. i expect barack obama to come back in two weeks and be far more effective. but the spin from the democrats, i've got to admit, has been pretty weak. >> if you are in charge of prep for them over the next two weeks, how would you alter strategy, if at all? >> well, the for matt is an interesting one that should play to barack obama's strength. it's a town hall format. you'll see a far more aggress
